PIEDMONT, SC (FOX Carolina) -
Greenville County deputies arrested two people who live at a home where a shooting happened Friday morning after they said drugs were found in the couple's home.
The shooting happened about 12:30 a.m. at 1072 Piedmont Golf Course Rd.
Deputies said that two masked men broke into an apartment at the Golf Course Manor Townhomes, and put a gun to 27-year-old Jasmine McGee's face, who was sleeping upstairs.
Investigators said that while McGee was being held at gunpoint, a man who also lives at the apartment, 23-year-old Byron Robinson, walked in but did not realize what was going on upstairs.
Deputies said the masked men heard Robinson come inside, ran downstairs, shot him in the leg and then ran away.
Investigators said that while they were investigating the break-in and shooting, they discovered a large amount of cocaine and marijuana inside the couple's home. They said because of that both Robinson and McGee were arrested and charged with trafficking cocaine and distribution of a schedule I drug.
Robinson was being held at a local hospital while he is treated for his gunshot wound.
McGee was being held in the county jail on $30,000 bond.
Deputies said they are still trying to identify the two men who broke into the home.
Anyone with information about the shooting was asked to call Crime Stoppers at 23-CRIME (864-232-7463).
